If it looks cheap don't buy it I have seen
A house going across the lake on one wheel
the other one was in the back of the pickup.
So check out the running gear real close.

www.***********.com use the product search on the left side and search under fishing products. I bought a trailer off of there from one of the surpliers. Used it the first time this year and it was great. I built the house on the trailer so I saved some money that way. There are half a dozen on that site with a wide range of prices. I like the Klave house alot because it is made out of aluminum, lightening the weight quite a bit. Good luck and I hope this helps.

Wallee, if you are interested in building your own to the way "you want it" why don't you look under the "Ice fishing Main Forum" for the thread "Crank up style frames-Intersted?". Rick posted it with some great looking crank up style frames that Aqua Eye located. I've seen alot and built my own and these look pretty darn good for the price. Any decent crank up style frame will work great at any temp! Take a look and good luck!

Wallee, I own a King crow 6.5 X12 wheels work fine in below zero weather, customized my house with tables propane lights for bunks I use folding cots on the back wall, hard to sleep more than three, but they do make larger houses when I bought mine not many doing wheel houses now many more Outdoor news has ads for more suppliers one key feature look close at the wheel and frame quality and bearings if you drive alot of miles needs to be strong as in camber for tire wear. Hope this helps I do like mine, Also if you do buy one leave it hooked up to your truck or atv, and drill holes first then drop the house down that way you get no snow or ice in the house.Good luck, Also put 2x4 blocks under all points that touch the ice.

      About the Rusties... I thought I posted this but it must have gone away with the server glitch.  Rusties have made it through oak narrows and are marching west. To the best of my knowledge they haven't gotten as far as Wakemup so Norwegian and HeadOlakes are still free of them.  When they get to us, I have my crab boil, trap, and old bay ready.  I figured trapping them east and importing them west might get me in trouble.   I can wait.

      Me too, going up for the week of July 4th for cabin projects and fishing and maybe some trail riding on the SxS. Oh, maybe some R&R and Coors Light too.

      I also have a ICIH, with a loud ac unit, would like to see a thermostat for it but most of time time I have house plugged into 120 volt outlet.

      Wow - 7 days of posts gone.  Seems like more than that.  Oh-well.  My next trip is a week and a half away.

      Per Rick on HSO they switched to a new server. Had a glitch in the database that lost a couple days of posts on HSO and FM

      Good luck fishing. It's a great way to spend retirement!

      Does anyone know where the more recent posts have gone? There were some posts from earlier in the week. BTW, not seeing any more floating dead minnows.....

      I had my last official guide trip Monday and Tuesday and we fished for Smallmouth bass. It was one of my regulars that I have fished with for over 10 years. George and I have caught 100's of Smallies over the years and this year was no different. We boated around 65 bass in two days in less than perfect conditions. Most were on topwater baits of one kind or another and the rest were taken on crank baits. I wasn't able to fish to much so George caught most of the fish. I know I will miss guiding and the friends I have made over the years. I guess I'll just have to fish more to get over all the time spent guiding.   Have a great season everybody.
